  • Education & Training Committee - Expressions of Interest & CSQ Industry Survey

    Employees are a valuable asset to any business - skilled workers are vital to your business success and that of our industry as a whole. With this in mind LQ members are invited to express their interest in being involved in an Industry Education & Training Committee.


    The purpose and role of this committee is broad and ongoing and will include the identification and recommendation of industry priorities in the training and skilling of our current industry workforce, an industry review of the current relevant training packages, the development of an industry/schools partnership template which may include strategies for the promotion of landscape as a genuine career option for students and the assessment of the viability and value of programs such as  landscape industry schools of excellence.


    Members from all sectors of the industry are welcome to contribute to this committee. The specific structure and operating format of the committee will be determined after expressions of interest have been received. It is envisaged that the committee’s recommendations will be formed after consultation with members and with the input of external advisors as required. All recommendations will be considered by the LQ Board and will include implementation strategies, goals and timelines.


    If you would like to be involved in this important industry project, please email our office with your contact details and provide a short summary stating how you can contribute and any relevant background information that may assist us in the formation of this committee.


    To express your interest or to seek further information please email or phone the LQ office on 1300 883 966
